As Microsoft said when describing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update rollout approach, “In late May, we will begin availability for those users on a currently supported version of Windows 10 who seek to update via ‘Download and install now’ (limited to devices with no known compatibility issues).”
Additionally, “We will also begin the phased rollout using our ML model to intelligently target those devices running Windows 10, version 1803 or prior versions that our data and feedback predict will have the best update experience.”
The rate of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update rollout was adjusted by Redmond based on user feedback to make sure that all devices receiving the update will “have the best possible update experience.”
